Today there are numerous plants using renewable energy for power production in Kötschach-Mauthen: 21 small hydro power plants (all in private property), 3 reservoirs, Carinthian`s only wind power plant (located at 1,400m – one of the highest wind power plants in Europe), one biogas plant and several PV and thermal solar plants.

Three biomass district heating systems were installed due to an initiative of the Mayor of Kötschach- Mauthen Walter Hartlieb in 1997 to connect all public buildings. Today the town hall (used for public services and cultural events), the school buildings (elementary and secondary school), residential buildings, public swimming pool, bank buildings and industrial plants are connected to the biomass district heating.
